Almost  back to normal, but not quite! 

The show is being carefully planned by all involved, to provide as stress free an environment as possible for the comfort of our cats and the safety of all human participants 

Class structure and awards will mirror a Championship Show with one exciting exception

DOUBLE UP ON CERTIFICATES

It’s a double celebration -  commemorating the first ever modern cat show,  and a chance to be together once again- so let’s double up on awards too. 

All pens will be doubles and two cats from the same household will be able to share and be together.

Penning will be by family group, even if multiple pens or sections are involved. 

Owners will be responsible for taking their own cats to the judging stations, where the judges will judge at tables. 

Please take note :- There will be requirements specific to this show which ALL attendees will be asked to agree to in advance.

These will be clearly detailed in the schedule and on the entry form.

By starting on 30 September 2020, we can enable dispensation clubs (if approved) to fully participate including nominating (as agreed by the majority of the GCCF Board).

KEY DATES                                              FAQs

The Board and CIVICA have produced a frequently asked questions (FAQs) document GCCF 2020 ELECTIONS - FAQs which should cover any key questions you may have about the election process.
